Richard; you could do a straw poll here:
Who went to SIBS and is going to LIBS
Who went to SIBS and is not going to LIBS
Who didn't go to SIBS and is also not going to LIBS
Who didn't go to SIBS but is going to LIBS
Throw in a few why? options for interest.
FYI: the monkey isn't planning on going to LIBS
2016: Lifestyle change - Jeanneau SO45.2 4sail
This is an old hobby horse of mine but I think 3 national boat shows (SIBS, LIBS and NCE) is 1 or 2 too many both for exhibitors and visitors and I think some consolidation of that situation is necessary
They didnt have a kids area this year ( The Beach) , I realize kids dont buy boats but they still have a huge influence and in any event no kids means swmbo has to stay away to look after the kids, does anyone choose buy a boat without swmbo's input ?
Ultimately is there any point in going alone ?
Alright I accept I am probably in the minority or the show organisers would have kept the beach but the parents who didnt realize the beach had been withdrawn this year would have left early no doubt with bored kids and the knock on effect is next year the kids will not want to go.
